In the category of Sports Official par excellence Carol Anne found herself against officials from the sports of Taekwondo and swimming. The 29 year old soccer referee was awarded the trophy. This is an outstanding achievement and the award is a clear demonstration of her hard work. She is an ambassador to refereeing and to the beautiful game.



Carol Anne is in her first year as a FIFA referee and has taken charge of the Women’s International match between Canada and China and an exhibition match between Canada and Italy. She regularly officiates in the Men’s USL league and has attended FIFA events in Mexico early this year. Later this week Carol Anne will be officiating in the University Championship Finals in Victoria, BC.



“We are delighted that a Soccer official has been recognized in this way by the Montrealais,” said Director of Refereeing at the CSA Joe Guest. “It acknowledges the immense dedication that officials have to put in to their training and development to reach the highest levels of the game”.
